Clear Scrap and Stampendous Week...

Clear Scraps and Stampendous are teaming up this week to bring you oodles of inspiration! For today's project I used a Clear Scraps Large Acrylic Banners. Not only do they make awesome banners, but at 9.5 by 7 inches they're large enough to make the perfect wall hangings! 



I started by stenciling white paint on the back of the banner with the QuarterFoil Mascil. When it was dry, I sprayed Frosted Glass Spray Paint to create the perfect frosted effect and seal the paint. On the front, I scribbled Spectrum Noir alcohol markers in CG2, CG4, and BT4. I spritzed alcohol on burlap and blotted it on the colored area. The alcohol lifts and moves the marker creating a cool effect. When it was dry, I sprayed Frosted Glass Spray Paint over it. 


I stamped the Parrot, three large leaves and sentiment on white cardstock. I colored the leaves with CCG1, CG2, CG3, BT1. I colored the parrot with CR1, CR5, CT4, OR1, TB4, EB7 and IG8. I added a bit of shadow with a black colored pencil to both the leaves and parrot. I fussy cut the parrot and leaves and diecut the sentiment. All that was left to do was adhere the images to the banner and add some twine to hang the banner with.
